Abortive infection of a rabbit cornea cell line by vesicular stomatitis virus: conversion to productive infection by superinfection with vaccinia virus.

Abstract

An abortive infection of a rabbit cornea cell line (RC-60) by vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), yielding less than 1 PFU/cell, was converted to a productive infection, yielding 1,900 PFU/cell, when cells were superinfected with vaccinia. Studies on the synthesis of VSV-directed RNA in RC-60 cells suggest that the abortive infection by VSV alone may be due… (More)
